With an interactive text and bright, playful illustrations, explore what baby animals really mean when they make their adorable baby animal sounds.
When a lion says ROAR,
does he really mean MORE?
When a cow says MOO,
does she really mean YOU?
How do we know what animals say when they say what they say with their sounds everyday? With an interactive text and bright, playful illustrations, Angela DiTerlizzi and Joey Chou explore what baby animals really mean when they make their adorable baby animal sounds.
Joey Chou was born in Taiwan and moved to California in his early teens. There he received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Joey has worked as an illustrator for feature animated films and has illustrated several picture books, including B. Bear and Lolly: Off to School. When it comes to cookies, chocolate chip has always been just right for Joey.
